Happy Birthday Clothes and Camera!

drawing by Natalya Posukhova

Let me start this post with one word: Wow! Today I'm celebrating three years of blogging and while the first two years were already super crazy and eventful, this third one was really mind-blowing!
Here are some of the things that happened to me because of the blog: At the end of last year I was invited to a huge store opening in Düsseldorf and could shop my favourites before all other girls waiting in a queue outside the store. In Spring my fellow blogger Anouk and I founded the Luxembourgish blogger group blogger_LU and we organised our first closet sale. I cooperated with a Luxembourgish brand for the first time. I went to the FashionBloggerCafé and held a workshop about detail photography. I also went to the popular dm-Marken Camp Beauty where I learnt a lot about blogging. Since September I attended some gorgeous events in Luxembourg and was able to witness the launch of a new Luxembourgish women's magazine. I attended my first Blogging Class organised by Luxembourg's first and only professional blogger, Emilie. Of course again I met a multitude of fellow bloggers, both here in Luxembourg and Germany, and some of them have become close friends of mine. And now the big news that I managed to keep secret up to today: Anouk and I were interviewed about our work as bloggers and founders of blogger_LU! The article will appear shortly and of course I will share it with you immediately.
But of course the story isn't over here! After these three years I feel like I only just began and I have endless ideas and plans in mind for this little spot on the Internet that I call my blog. A few lovely things are planned for the end of the year and my ambitions are higher than ever. That's why over the last few months I wasn't that satisfied with my blog design and blogging style anymore which is why I have been making lots of small changes over the last weeks. I wanted my design to be a bit more neat, which is why you can admire my new lightened header from today on. You may also have noticed a little change in my blogging attitudes: I went down from an average of 7 posts a week to an average of 5 posts. Not because I don't enjoy blogging anymore! No I simply wanted to take more time to create better content and also give you the time to check out my posts more extensively. After having tried this concept for about 2 months I'm glad to say that it's just the right rhythm for me and that it did no harm to my blog stats.
And while I've been having a lot of support from my boyfriend, family, friends and fellow bloggers, I also know that without you, my dear readers, I wouldn't be where I am today. Because a blog without followers is just a really time consuming diary. So thanks a thousand times, especially to those who have been followers since the very beginning, but also to those who only just joined our community. I hope that all of you are curious for more and willing to continue this journey with me

  10. Congrats on your milestone! I've been at it for a few years too and the last year has been so amazing for me too. I didn't attend any blogging events or do anything in the public eye but growth of a thing like a blog, our own space just feels amazing! I'm a fan of your simple design, I too try to be simple and clean!
